Similar to sun-jdk and setiathome, this ebuild (attached) first requires you
to download the package and place it into $DISTDIR. This makes it much easier
to maintain winex under Gentoo. Some unresolved issues are what License to
use and the dependencies. Currently just copied the run-time deps from the
gentoo winex ebuild.

the ebuild specified in the report

The digest for the package downloadable from Transgaming
whats the advantage of using this ebuild over the current winex ?
this installs a transgaming-supported tarball that has all the stuff that you
can only get if you have a transgaming subscription (cd protection, etc).

new version of the ebuild
This is a new cleaned up version of the winex-transgaming ebuild. It will now
check MD5 and use less bash. Tastes great and less filling.
I can't test it on my box (i'm no winex subscriber because i have no credit
card) but i will add it shortly.
Changing status to ASSIGNED.
Adding it as we speak. Sorry for the delay - i took some time off (one month).
Do i see that right, or does it share locations with app-emulation/winex (/usr/bin/winex)?
I'm making winex-transgaming block winex and vice versa. Got a better idea?

Oh hey! I forgot abou this thing. Yeah, making it block winex and winex-cvs
is probably a good idea as the winex prebuilt package contains all the paths
hardcoded (methinks). I'm also attaching a new cleaner ebuild. (I learned some
stuff about portage and ebuilds in the past few months) :-)
Committed. Test it please (because i can't).
